Hollowed Ground

Otherwise known as my "crazy-big and full closet" by female visitors to my apartment...

I often talk about my fetish for shoes and clothes, but I haven't ever shared the gloriousness that is mine. Click the pictures for a better view of the closet and my commentary:

Notice the Stuart Weitzman's in picture two are the only shoes still in a box. They are also still wrapped in the original tissue paper. My mother bought these from Nordstrom for me as my college graduation gift. I have only worn them twice - when I graduated from college and when the cop received his badge. Perhaps I will post a picture of these "spiritual" shoes at a later date.

Also not pictured: my collection of huge travel bags; a roll-away set of drawers for scarves, gloves, clutch purses and belts; the section of closet that houses all my winter coats; upper storage shelves full of linens, suitcases, boxes of collectibles, and other things.

Note to Self: I fear the day that I move from this apartment into my roomie's new house. I'll be getting a much smaller closet, so what am I to do with all my pretty things?

So jealous! Your closet is incredibly organized. Hey, I just got the best idea....Why don't you come to LA for a visit and you can organize MY closet! Sounds good, huh? See you soon! : )

This sorta reminds me of my closet... except i have to share mine w/ DH Boo!

I have my tops organized by spaghetti straps, tank, short sleeve, long sleeve, sweater too.

Although I like your hanging cubby thing... I might steal that idea from ya!

I wish we were neighbors, and that we wore teh same size shoe.. lol

26 pairs of flip flops? You are the Imelda Marcos of flip flops.

But in a nice way.

I think your closet is bigger than my bathroom. Seriously. I used to have tons of shoes when I was younger and I could have used your organization skills. Yup - I'm jealous! ;)

Look at how organized you are! It puts my shoes-thrown-in-corner to shame ;-)

Alison - You buy the ticket, and I am THERE.

KPD - Yeah, I don't know what DBF is going to do with all his stuff. There's no way we'll fit both of ours into one closet. The hanging cubby I got from Target. I think it's shabby-chic brand.

PE - Yes, well, you know. Somehow I just accumulated them all. But really, I only wear like two pairs on a regular basis.

Teeni - I think it is as big as my bathroom. It's not as organized as you think - it's just that everything is shoved in drawers. Plus, I had to spiff it up for the picture lol.

CM - You should see the rest of my room though. D stole my clothes hamper, so now everything ends up on the floor.
